Improv at the Correspondents Dinner

What happens when a cameraman throws a party? A lot of wine, beer and laughs is what we found out. Hats off to CNN’s Jay McMichael for chairing this year’s Congressional Correspondents Dinner.

Wayne Brady’s improv and rap using words from the crowd (you try making filibuster cool) and Prince impersonations were hilarious. Speaker John Boehner was dry but still had some funny moments. The Howard University Thunder Machine drum line was off the charts and kept the party hopping.

NBC Washington was well represented too. Special thanks to my guest Jermaine Paul, Season 2 Winner of The Voice. He was a star in the crowd.. graciously taking pictures with his Washington fans.

My guest The Voice’s Jermaine Paul with Congressman Jim Clyburn. Look for Jermaine’s single “Butterfly Kisses” which comes out Father’s Day!

Swimming in the Fishbowl.. and getting bounced

Oh my gills. We took a break from the daily grind of the night shift at NBC4 to take a swim in the fish bowl at U street hotspot Lost Society.
Mediabistro hosted a FishbowlDC Party which drew a mix of news anchors, political reporters and popular bloggers. I finally got the chance to meet the bowl’s big wig Betsy Rothstein who is so so tiny. Standing next to her I felt pregnant again. Guests enjoyed fun finger foods like chicken and waffles on a stick … washing it down with Belvedere cocktails. Notables spotted included Fox News Contributor Tucker Carlson, White House Correspondent Major Garrett, Bloomberg’s Margaret Carlso and Washington Post’s Erik Wemple. There were a lot more too… you can see the list and more pictures here. Take Note: Don’t show up to a FishbowlDC Party without your ID…  a popular PR maven and blogger gets bounced out of the bowl… read the funny recollection
